Pallets are being used for so many purposes these days. And pallets are cheap if not free to acquire.

Hamburg, New York is the reputed place where the "hamburger" was invented. But a million places all over the U.S. and world make that claim so you'll have no beef with me if you disagree. Anyhow, we went for the garden walk. From the weird to the wonderful, you'll see it here. So many unique ideas that many of us might want to consider trying in our own yards and gardens. It seems like people in Hamburg take their yards and gardens very seriously. Or maybe not and that's why we spotted so much silliness. And as a little DIY commercial, Tom has been working on an outdoor DIY project for fall that I bet you will love. I'm so grateful he got on this one. It's coming up in the next week or so. Keep your eyes peeled!
Nothing demonstrates holiday cheer better than changing the exterior experience of your house. Your lawn is the first thing guests see when they visit your home. It's also the only thing your neighbors see if you never invite them inside. You don't want to decorate for just Christmas and Easter.

The outside of your residence should tell people who lives inside. Here are four tips for decorating the outside of your home for the holidays.
Pink tire planter? Why not. Once again, we're taking you along on the Buffalo Garden Walk and hope you find some inspiration today. I don't implement everything I see, just like I don't make every recipe I see on a food blog. But I get ideas. And I funnel them away for later. I don't even like everything I see. Some things seem tacky or just don't reflect my style. But tweaking them to suit my yard and my garden goals is fun. At the end of the day, I'm just trying to create a landscape that is a comfortable place to relax. How about you? What are your goals for your yard this year? Anything new planned? Read More
Little Summer Street is a special place in Buffalo, NY. The words quaint and charming are an understatement. Adorable is more like it. Adorable houses. Adorable gardens. Hey, we can't all live on Little Summer Street but that doesn't mean we can't replicate their splendid sense of style. And you can probably guess by now that I never tire of succulents. This creative display just draws the eye and the homemade pots are fabulous. They are low maintenance but look so good! We were thrilled with Amy Komeneckys garden and her welcoming aura. She let my 3-year-old use her bathroom and gave her some bottled water! Read More
